The Sabre

  • The Sabre
  • The sabre is a cutting and thrusting weapon that has its origins in the cavalry sabre of the seventeenth century. Attacks can be delivered with both the edge and the tip of the blade. Oddly, it is the lightest modern fencing weapon. As in foil, an attack with right-of-way in sabre competition has priority over an attack without. Sabre fencing is characterized by quick footwork, and fiery blade actions.
